About the Doula
Doula Since: 2014
Number of Births Attended: 12

My name is Anya, I was trained as a birth doula in July of 2014, and have slowly started practicing since then. Self proclaimed birth junkie, I love all things birth and am always reading and learning about this miraculous process. I feel privileged and honored to be invited to births. There is nothing quite like seeing a woman become a new mother, whether it's for the first time or 10th, and witnessing the bonding and the connections in those first blissful moments between her and the baby, and the partner/s if there are any present.
Once hired as your doula we will meet at least twice prenatally, to get to know each other and your birth preferences, I can help you write the birth plan if you'd like. I will be at your birth from the time you decide you want me there until after the baby is born and you are ready for a nap (usually 2-4 hours post birth). Our last visit will be 1-2 weeks post partum, to visit and check up on new mama and baby, and to review the experience.
A little about myself, I'm a mother of 2, we homeschool and I stay at home and work from home as needed. I live in San Mateo, and will drive as far as San Francisco, San Jose and East Bay to attend births. Driving is my alone time (so I don't mind some distance), when you are a stay at home mom you take silence in whatever form it comes and enjoy it!
Feel free to contact me via email/ text/ phone to chat further or to set up a complimentary interview.
Happy Birthing!
